Instructors at Pierce Athletics flip limbs and encourage limbering back bends and high-flying leaps in an 11,500-square-foot gym during an array of tumbling classes. Muscles stretch and bodies soar during 60- to 90-minute classes divided by age and skill level. Each course holds a few sessions per week; this Groupon covers one session per week for nine weeks. Adults tag along with miniature athletes for Tiny Tumblers classes, introducing tykes as young as 18 months to coordination and flexibility, and older newbies in the Beginner or Advanced Beginner courses learn cartwheels and round-offs to serve them throughout life's dance-offs.

After graduating from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in kinesiology exercise science, ACE-certified trainer and Fit Fun Bootcamps founder Dustin Maher designed MamaTone Fitness to help moms vanquish weight gain after childbirth. Inspired by his own mother—who cooked his siblings and him healthful meals but rarely had enough time to exercise—Maher strives to imbue his clients with the motivation to do both. Whether training new moms, moms-to-be, dads who had moms, or curiously fast sons whose moms found them in the middle of a Kansas corn field climbing out of a spaceship, his group classes and boot camps immerse participants in a full-body workout with moral support from neighboring exercisers.
April Namio, the owner of Capital Gymnastics, started her gymnastics training when she was 3 years old—and at her gym, other kids can do the same. The programs range from basic classes for preschool-age tots to competitive training for older kids, with more complex routines incorporating the bars, vault, beam, floor, and trampoline.
At Prairie Athletic Club, fitness is not dependent on the weather. No matter your sport, you can find a space to play it while avoiding the snow. The club boasts an indoor soccer field, track and field space, racquetball courts, and basketball courts. If swimming is your forte, you can dip into the family pool, six lane lap pool with deep water, or the 90 degree warm water pool. After a cardio workout, build up muscle strength in the weight room or dip into the adult and family whirlpools and infrared saunas to relax tense muscles.
